I guess you have stumbled upon the resolution yourself.
The Tub ratlling could be because of three things.
1. The Belt itself , as it might have slacked after use. and needs replacement
2. The tumbler bearing, that would require you to open the tub
3. The holding bolts that connect both the inside and outside tubs of the dryer.
and do check the floor balance of the dryer.if the surface is not even the dryer can tumble and make noise.

If your bearing,glides, and idler are all fine then your motor is gone.
You could apply some zoomoil to that motor but you will have to drill some access holes as the manufacturer does not provide any. For $150 bucks a pop I would try a $2 bottle of High temp zoomoil from ace hardware first.Use a 1/6th inch drill bit and do not hit the shaft. The bearing wells are on either side of the motor and you will have to take the drum out to get to the motor. To access the dryer innards open the door and remove the screws holding down the top. Get the top out yer way and remove the front. Get the drum out and clean out the dryer. Send me any folding money you find. LOL You may find enough change in the dryer to buy some oil. Zoomoil is use for HVAC. It is heat resistant and does not disapate. After filling each bearing work the motor by hand till it loosens up. Oil the idler check the slides and the rear bearing for wear.
